Summer Music Festival Run-Down: Part 1
Who wants to spend their summer farting around on the couch all afternoon in their skivvies while shoveling down last night’s Chinese? Because eventually these rainy days will give way to summer sun, which in turn will give way to babes in bikinis and a plethora of music festivals. This year many of the same bands will be hitting both coasts throughout the season, however, each fest bring it’s own flavor. Check out the first round of who’s-who at a handful of upcoming fests.
Coachella, April 17-19
Southern California is sunny, right? For sure, dude, since Coachella is in a desert: a hot, arid strip of untainted nothingness. And that is, naturally, the ideal locale for a 21st century rave for a crowd of American Apparel clad scensters. The first fest of the season will be dominated by an all day danceathon (Crystal Method, The Bug, Hecules & Love Affair) smattered with notable avant-garde acts (Liars, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti). And mysteriously not getting a headlining spot, long time recording artist/musical genius Leonard Cohen will be there. Paul McCartney will have ample stage time as well, presenting a great opportunity to see an honest-to-god Beatle in a hip setting and time may be running out, 50% of Fab Four live on only in through their Michael Jackson-owned catalog. And My Bloody Valentine and Public Enemy require any music fan’s undivided attention at some point in your life, so why not now?
Who: Paul McCartney, Morrissey, Leonard Cohen, Beirut, The Crystal Method, Patton & Rahzel, The Bug, Gui Boratto, TV On The Radio, Hercules & Love Affair, Liars, Glass Candy, Gang Gang Dance, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, The Cure, My Bloody Valentine, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Throbbing Gristle, X, Antony & the Johnsons, Roni Size Reprazent, Public Enemy, Lykke Li, Sebastien Tellier, The Horrors, Supermayer, No Age, Vivian Girls and more.
